‘1923’: Timothy Dalton Joins Taylor Sheridan’s ‘Yellowstone’ Prequel

Timothy Dalton Joins ‘Yellowstone’ Prequel ‘1923’

According to ComicBook, the 1923 prequel landed the fourth James Bond, himself, Timothy Dalton. His character description is only as a nefarious and wealthy man named Donald Whitfield, presumably playing a man with his eyes on the Dutton Ranch. Dalton will play a formidable villain going up against Harrison Ford in the prequel.

Dalton made a name for himself in the 1980s as James Bond in only two films as the famous super spy, “The Living Daylights” and “License to Kill.” Since then, he has appeared in dozens of movies and TV series, including “American Outlaws” as Allen Pinkerton hot on Collin Ferrell’s Jesse James, the murderous store owner Simon Skinner in Simon Pegg’s “Hot Fuzz,” and, of course, Mr. Pricklepants in many “Toy Story” projects. Most recently, he has appeared in two TV series, as Malcolm Murray in “Penny Dreadful,” and Niles Caulder in the DC “Titans” spin-off, “Doom Patrol.”

According to Deadline, Dalton will portray Donald Whitfield, a powerful, self-confident man who reeks of wealth and the lack of empathy it requires to attain it. He is intimidating and nefarious and is used to getting what he wants.

Dalton joins previously announced cast members Harrison Ford, Helen Mirren, Brandon Sklenar, Sebastian Roche, Darren Mann, Michelle Randolph, James Badge Dale, Marley Shelton, Brian Geraghty, Aminah Nieves, Julia Schlaepfer, Robert Patrick, and Jerome Flynn.

From Taylor Sheridan, 1923 will introduce a new generation of the Dutton family and explore the early twentieth century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition, and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home.

1923 is currently in production in Montana and is set for a December 2022 release. It’s not clear if this latest addition to the Yellowstone franchise will be a continuous or limited series, but 1883 with Tim McGraw and Faith Hill was the latter.

The Paramount+ original is produced by MTV Entertainment Studios, 101 Studios, and Bosque Ranch Productions. Sheridan, John Linson, Art Linson, David C. Glasser, Ron Burkle, David Hutkin, Bob Yari, and Ben Richardson serve as executive producers.
